Overview

Island Surfboards was established in 1969 at Phillip Island. They got a great surf school at Smiths beach and a fun surf shop in Cowes. The coaches and staff are so proffessional at what they do and i had a fantastic time visiting Phillip Island because of them. I strongly recommend people to go there when you're in the area.
